Angela Lansbury was born on October 16, 1925 in London, England. She would later become a successful actress and singer in theater, on television, and in movies. Her career has spanned 7 decades, and her next movie, entitled ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins’ is set to be released in the summer of 2011. Angela’s mother was an Irish-born actress, and her father was the former mayor of London and a Communist party member. Just before the German bombing campaign on London in 1940, Angela’s mother took the children to the United States to live.
